Palmdale Sheriff’s Deputies arrested College of the Canyons student Joseph Carlos Beltran Wednesday night.

Beltran is due to appear in court this week over allegations involving a Sept. 5 assault case.

Deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station were seeking public assistance in locating Joseph Carlos Beltran, a 22 year-old Hispanic male from the Castaic area.

Beltran is accused of stealing gas by siphoning it from a vehicle on the 18500 block of Soledad Canyon Road near Sierra Highway. When the victim confronted the alleged suspect about why he was siphoning gas, the suspect allegedly used a writing pen in an attempt to stab the victim.
